Looks like a bad LSD trip. There is potential there.

That's what you get when your mommy and daddy are brother and sister . . .

I wonder how many fins of the new radiator have been crushed by that bell clapper.

It says 1922 but it looks like the seat and probably the body was cut down from a '24 or '25 Tudor. The interior is quite charming. If not for the paint job it could be a fun car.

Looks more like a clown car. I can imagine Ronald McDonald standing by it.

Like my Dad use to say..."Paint don't make 'um run". It would not be hard to bring this one back.

Why can't people leave these cars alone the way Henry Ford intended. It's one thing to have a classic you can be proud of. It's quite another to be a total attention whore.

People have been whoring their Model T's for a looong time! Maybe it was a clown car. It could have been cut down back in WW2 and made in a pickup. As long as you can bring smiles and have fun, what ever!

I haven't left many Fords the way Henry intended but I've had a lot of fun. My guess is that Henry didn't really care as long as he got his $$$.

This is a topic that has been discussed on the forum a few times. Quite a few of those pickups were made out a two door body. Most of them are 1926-27 models. This is the only older one I have seen. There seems to be differences in the way they were done and differences in the quality of the conversion. Some of them were probably done by shade tree bodymen, some look like they might have been done at a bodyshop or by a Ford dealer. I believe the jury is still out on the notion that some of these might have come from the factory. They are very similar to the first Model A pickup cabs. Officially, Ford never made any on the Model T chassis. However, I keep hearing stories about some of these being special orders. One version I heard is that the Bell Telephone Company ordered a fleet of these hard-cab pickups for the linemen in 1927. I have not found any evidence to present on that, but Iím still looking.

I'll bet the lights go out when the horn button is pushed. Three horns and a siren should bury the ammeter. My dog is getting excited looking at the photo, must look like a hydrant. Oh well.

I bet whoever built it had a lot more fun with it than some of you sour guys have with yours.

A quote from Herman & Freida: I swear by God Freida, if any one of those three old biddies ever had a good word to say about any thing or any body I'd kiss their bare asses at noon on Saturday in the middle of Main Street in Aberdeen and give them thirty minutes to draw a crowd.

He might have been having fun but, there's a difference between being smiled at and laughed at.

I'll take lightening people's day with a smile and some fun over being a sour ass any day. Where are the pictures of your perfectly restored and factory correct car? You don't have any on your profile.

Wait a minute, we were discussing that clown car on Ebay, how did my car get into this?
